27th Infantry Brigade[edit]

Hi Ed!, good work on all these brigade pages. Noticed that at 27 IBCT, you've got a ref to a CINCUSACOM contingency plan. Are you sure this is the current, up to date federal mission statement? I ask because as you probably know, U.S. Atlantic Command became Joint Forces Command several years ago. Best regards and keep up the good work! Buckshot06 (talk) 04:59, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

The wording was somewhat odd. The plan was, I believe, originally designed by CINCUSACOM, before they changed the command. I reworded it. -Ed! (talk) 21:03, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Candela[edit]

Regarding this edit: What did you have in mind? You seem to be adding the refimprove tag to a lot of articles today. Are you simply assuming that any article with fewer than a set number of references must need more, or is there some more specific concern with each of these articles?--Srleffler (talk) 22:21, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes, most of the articles I have been adding tags to have litte to no frame of reference about them, and articles such as this one could use more sources because sections of it (such as the "Origin" section) have a lot of statements that can and should be referenced, mostly I think parenthetical citations would improve things substantially. -Ed! (talk) 22:24, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
I think you should slow down. At a quick glance through the references, most of what is in the "origin" section seems to be covered in the article's references. Additionally, the Origin section directly refers to several sources (inline, rather than through a citation template). I think that in your rush to add these tags, you are failing to carefully evaluate whether the articles have sufficient references already.
Beyond that, I do not think that adding large numbers of refimprove tags to Wikipedia is very helpful. Almost every article's references could be improved. It's better to save the tag for cases where something specific is needed. .--Srleffler (talk) 22:34, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
I would tend to agree, to an extent. But a large number of these articles have only a few external links to provide proof that everything on them is true. It doesn't seem very professional to me to have a lack of parenthetical sources, but if I have misused the template, I will stop. -Ed! (talk) 22:41, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Military history WikiProject coordinator election[edit]

Fernao Pires de Andrade[edit]

Thanks for passing it as GA! I'm glad you enjoyed the article.--Pericles of AthensTalk 06:16, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Sure thing! You did very good work on it. -Ed! (talk) 03:57, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

On "Irreplaceable"[edit]

Thanks for the review. --Efe (talk) 09:08, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Sure thing! -Ed! (talk) 23:00, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
Also for "Ring the Alarm". --Efe (talk) 01:08, 22 February 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I'm trying to clear out the congestion in the GA nominations and get as many of them going as possible. You've done very good work on both articles! -Ed! (talk) 02:49, 22 February 2008 (UTC)
You've done a great job on GAN as well. Thanks for the compliment. Cheers! --Efe (talk) 08:35, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Opeth[edit]

Thank you for the review! That is the first time I have had an article with no fixes that were needed in the GAN. —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 03:36, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes, it was an extremely well-done article, and very deserving of GA status. Good work on it! -Ed! (talk) 23:00, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Henry Timberlake article GA review[edit]

Ed!:

I'm not sure I'll get a chance to work on the Henry Timberlake article this week to bring it up to par for GA. Would you mind giving us another week to complete it?

Thanks, and we appreciate your peer-review effort. Bms4880 (talk) 22:19, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Sure thing! I imagine other editors will come along and review it also. It is very close to GA status. -Ed! (talk) 23:01, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Image:4th Sustainment Brigade.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Image:4th Sustainment Brigade.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on [[ Talk:Image:4th Sustainment Brigade.jpg|the talk page]] explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Hennessey, Patrick (talk) 01:54, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Washington Park Race Track[edit]

I believe I have responded to your comments. I remain willing to address further concerns. I note that my co-author is unavailable until Tuesday.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTD) 15:25, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Yo Ed, thanks for reviewing the Night of the Sentinels article, I have fixed everything in that article, at least I think i did, could you check it out and see if everything you wanted fixed is done. Gman124 (talk) 01:14, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
